that vote would look like. the nsa vote that we saw and how close that vote was, you know, this strain of sort of national security isolationists, some people would call them, both in the left and the right, it would be a tough vote. pelosi and boehner would have to be working together to drum up support for the president. oh, by the way, it would delay any potential action. if you believe you've got to do this in a certain period of time to save lives because you're trying to make sure he doesn't use chemical weapons again, then you're sort of defeating the purpose of the quick action. >> ayman, as george mentioned, the arab league has now officially blamed assad for the chemical weapons attack. this is the same arab league that suspended syria from the arab league in 2011. what impact, if any, is this going to have? >> reporter: well, it's one of those statements that you kind of have the wiggle room to interpret the way you want. one, the statement that came out of the arab league was at the ambassadorial level. some of its closest allies, including lebanon, did not vote. it also pr
the cia and nsa, adam. congressman, thanks for being here. what did you know about this decision about timing and did it surprise you? >> it doesn't surprise me the administration has come to the conclusion fairly rapidly they have to act. the president about draw a line in the sand and that line has been crossed repeatedly and to an even greater extent, so the military has to act i think what secretary kerry said yesterday, the administration has made the decision to act. once you've made that decision, i think delay is really not in your favor. they do need to get a few things done. they need to rally the support of the international community. they need to have consultations with congress. i would love to see us call back into session, although i think unlikely. if the president limits the action to targeting those instrumental its used to deliver chemical weapons and it's of limited duration, i think he can get by with consultations with congress. if what he has in mind is something broader than that, then we must have a vote. but i don't think the administration is planning someth
